    Myth about Addiction

    Addiction is a social problem or a problem of morals

    People with addictions may behave in a way that is in violation of their own personal values or the laws of society. If one simply looks at the behavior of a person with addiction, they may believe that the person with addiction is, at their core, a bad person. Addiction is caused by chemical changes in the brain. Therefore addiction is about the brain, not about morals.
